All commercial buildings are required to have a “Life Safety System” installed. However, you may find it can even benefit your home as well. Burley Electrical Services will cover the different types of safety life systems and how they are designed to help keep your business as well as your home, safer. The main systems used for safety life systems are Fire Alarms, Carbon Dioxide Gas Alarms, Smoke Alarms and even Emergency Lighting Systems. Burley Electrical Services will explain the importance as well as the usage of each of these major life safety systems.
List of Fire & Life Safety Systems
Fire Alarms Systems – Fire alarm systems are pretty much standard in most commercial buildings and they are comprised of several components. The main components that make up a fire alarm system are: notification devices such as horns or audible alarm systems, as well as lighting. Some additional components of a fire alarm system is manual emergency pull boxes, smoke detector sensors, along with an enunciator panel with backup power that feeds into the control unit. In multiple story commercial buildings, these systems will be in both elevator as well as stairways. Sprinkler lines are usually installed all throughout the building to deter the spreading of fires. However, these Fire Alarm Systems can be installed in both commercial as well as residential properties and everyone can benefit from a fire alarm system.
Carbon Monoxide Alarm – Most people believe that carbon monoxide alarm systems and fire alarms are one in the same thing when in fact; they are actually quite different from each other. Carbon monoxides systems are more of a detector and a preventive warning device. Often carbon monoxide alarm systems are combined with fire alarms system to help detect carbon monoxide before a major fire begins.
Emergency Lighting Systems – Emergency light systems are basically connected to a generator that helps provide light for a minimum period of time in the event power is lost to a building. Emergency light is most important to provide enough light to help all occupants navigate safely out of the building. Again, commercial buildings are required to have these safety lighting systems. However residential homes and especially multi-storied homes that have staircases and may be hard to safely navigate through in the dark would benefit from having them. All commercial buildings are required to provide lighted exit signs that are also connected to the same emergency power system.
Electrical Inspection & Maintenance of Life Safety Systems
These life safety systems are designed to help protect as well as prevent injury or death in the event there is a power outage or fire. All of the safety life features can be used in both commercial as well as residential buildings. Safety life systems do require regular inspection and maintenance to insure proper function as well as reliance.
